Merkel says recovered from shaking bout after drinking water

The 64-year-old's body shook uncontrollably as she stood next to visiting Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky, whom she was welcoming to her office building with military honours.

The German chancellor Angela Merkel has blamed dehydration after she was seen shaking during a rendition of her national anthem.

Reuters news agency reported that she were struggling to stand while she and the newly elected leader in Kiev listened to the national anthem during military honors.

Merkel, who turns 65 next month, then smiled after a reporter asked whether her shaking was cause for concern, saying that she was fine.

Another commented: "Angela Merkel shakes uncontrollably during Ukraine's PM visit".

She has announced that she will step down when her current - fourth - term runs out in 2021.

The chancellor was answering a question about her wellbeing at a joint news conference with President Zelensky.

Is Nick Caserio eager to leave Patriots for Texans?
Caserio has a year left on his contract, and last week's events make it clear the Patriots intend for him to honor it. But according to The Boston Globe's Ben Volin, that's not what Caserio wants.

She laughed and gave Mr Zelenskiy a smile when he assured reporters the chancellor had been secure at his side.

"She was standing next to me and completely safe", he said.

It is said this has occurred because she didn't drink enough water at the time.

Following the anthems, Merkel managed to get herself together and was seen walking quickly alongside Zelensky into the chancellery.

In 2014, she postponed a TV interview at the last minute due to feeling weak.

Merkel has been Chancellor of Germany since 2005. German privacy laws are very strict on that type of information, according to the AP.
